“My very favourite of the four Queens of Crime is Allingham” - J. K. Rowling

Wanted: Someone Innocent, follows the impoverished Miss Gillian Brayton, whose luck begins to change when a school reunion reacquaints her with a now-famous old friend, Rita Fayre. When Rita offers her a job she accepts immediately and is swept away in Rita’s Rolls Royce to what she expects will be a glamorous new life as nurse to a wounded war hero. The reality, however, is less than luxurious. Ignored by the staff, overwhelmed by the work, Gillian is sure things can’t get any worse. Until, that is, Rita is found dead…

In Last Act, Margot Rob, an aging French actress has taken up residence in a British country home along with her servants, two grandsons and a young woman she has taken on as her ward.

When she turns up dead there are no shortage of suspects. The grandson who, rumour has it, was about to be disinherited or the long time servant fed up of catering to the eccentric actress requests?

But in a country home murder, there's always more than one suspect…. so who killed Margot Rob?


And Death Came Too is a non-series title by Richard Hull

Quote:
After three nights of celebration in the oppressive August heat, four friends consider a very peculiar invitation.

Intrigue and restlessness triumph over exhaustion, and the group begrudgingly accepts… but upon their arrival at Mr Yeldam’s house, their host is nowhere to be seen. A man plays an odd game of solitaire, a strange woman flees out a back door, and the bizarre becomes deadly when a police constable enters, announcing Yedlham has been found stabbed to death in the other room.

Who had the motive and means to kill this reclusive man? With the prime suspect missing, the clock is ticking to solve this case before the four friends are accused of murder.

And Death Came Too is another golden age mystery from the sardonic and sly Richard Hull. Master of the inverted mystery, here he weaves a true-to-style, classic whodunnit.

And Death Came Too was first published in 1939.
